    Default Everything is annoying the heck out of me. :( long vent.

    Losec was a lifesaver for DD when she had reflux. You can get it with a script. Go to a compounding chemist and they make it into a solution to give bub rather than the regular tablets. Hope things get better soon.

    Losec and infant gaviscon were (and still are) my lifesavers. That and the local mother and baby unit. They looked after him for half a day so I could get some sleep and some help with feeding and finding what the hell would work for him. Your inlaws and friends need to grow up and start considering you and your needs - it's not about them!! I really hope things I prove for you xx

    So sorry to read that you are having such a rough trot! Maybe your DH could fend off the visitors for a while? Hope the chiro can help! Big hugs xx

    My DD2 was like this, she only had to turn her head a certain way and she would vomit. She was a shocking sleeper because as soon as she lay down she woke up. The only position she was comfy in was with her head forward on my chest. The chiro was a massive help. After one visit, the vomiting stopped (one more incident a couple of weeks later but that was it).

    I would say though, just keep an eye on his neck, especially when he develops head control. Watch how he holds his head, look for bulges and flat spots, and prop him facing outwards against your tummy in front of a mirror (if he is holding his head crooked, looking at it in reverse can make it more obvious).

    I say this because even though the vomiting stopped, we had continued trouble with DD2's feeding, she was never comfortable with a full tummy, didn't take well to solids and had slow growth. I ended up back at the chiro in desperation when she was about 9m, and it took 2-3m to sort her out that time around. I am convinced we could have avoided a lot of worry and sleepless nights if I had taken her to some follow up/maintenance visits once the initial problem was sorted out.

    Hope you go well at the chiro, do update when you get a chance
